  1. Even in the golden age of start-ups and relaxed corporate dressing ethics, the power of a well-cut suit is horribly unparalleled. One, because if you're at a pitch presentation and dressed in casuals, there's a chance that a certain contemporary might spill his coffee in disappointment. Or, just laugh at your naive (read: dumb) professional behaviour. Number two, there's a reason why suits are known as a boardroom rule, you see—they're literally that imperative to a small/large scale business setting. But, while single-breasted suits are the most common sights at work, double-breasted variants are underestimated with ease (or in most cases, men are not even aware of their existence in the world). But as they say, celebrity endorsements solve a lot of problems, let's dig deep into Diljit Dosanjh's recent outfit: ©Viral Bhayani A few may ask, "How is a double-breasted suit a more logical move than a single-breasted one?" The answer is easy: Everything's logical, if you're eyeing the top slot during appraisal month. However, while we agree that the double-breasted suit looks a lot more formal (as opposed to the singles), that's exactly how you'll earn brownie points, right? That extra padding on a double-breasted suit is exactly what'll do the trick for you. ©Viral Bhayani And as seen on Diljit Dosanjh here, he's maintained a very relaxed feel with the shirt (by leaving two-buttons-open), but stuck to dress shoes to maintain the ensemble's sanctity. A great hack for guys who're eyeing a lot of polish, but without that added seriousness involved. But, keep your cyclonic chest hair in check. And remember, a man cleavage won't land you that business deal (in fact, you'll lose it). ©Viral Bhayani And now, how do you take it from season to season (if you're not the man of all-over monotone)? Through the chills, go in for wool trousers or dark denim to keep you warm (depending on your corporate ethics). And in the summer, give chinos or trousers in natural fabrics a try. To sum it up: If there's a raffle ticket for transitions from a cubicle to a corner office, it's probably a double-breasted suit.
  2. Will Ferrell bombards Roger Federer with a series of weird questions Hollywood icon Will Ferrell did a bizarre interview of Roger Federer at the end of the Swiss star?s win in the Australian Open first round. After the tennis maestro outclassed Aljaz Bedene by 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, Ferrell walked onto the court and what followed were the weirdest ever questions thrown at Federer. Ferrell: ?Quick question Roger, you?re 36-years-old, you seem ageless, are you a witch or a vampire? Federer: Ahh I don?t like those. Ferrell: There?s a rumour in the men?s locker room that you love coming to play in Melbourne and your secret to fitness is you only eat wombat meat. Is that true? Federer: That is untrue. I have not (eaten it). Should I? Watch the rest of it here:

  4. It looks like IIM-Ahmedabad will probably have a gala time in the classrooms with 100% attendance. Why? Because, IIM-A is all set to introduce SS Rajamouli's 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' as a case study in their academic curriculum. Yes, reportedly in a first, 'Baahubali 2' will be included in one of the electives and the students of Contemporary Film Industry, will study the power of a sequel and how they can 'derisk' the movie as a marketing concept. © Arka Media Works According to a report published in DNA, Bharathan Kandaswamy said, "I will be introducing 'Bahubali 2' as a case study in the new academic year and it will essentially focus on the power of a sequel and how a sequel can derisk the movie as a marketing concept. There is a research from Stanford University which says that a prequel is always considered better than the sequel but a sequel makes more money than a prequel." He further added "Sequels make more money because the producers become more marketing savvy based on the success of a prequel. My course this time will focus on marketing mantras evolving around sequels and how decisions need to be taken that respect art and creativity of a movie and yet are able to make money. Blending art, business and technology is the key." © Pexels (For Representation) Well, IIM-A is said to be the first business school in Asia to introduce a comprehensive elective course on the film industry and over 700 students have already enrolled in the course. This course provides a 360 degree view of the creative industry space with special focus on movie production. In fact, the official account of 'Baahubali' too shared the news with their fans on Twitter. #Baahubali2 now will be introduced as a case study in one of the electives at the @IIMAhmedabad ðððâ — Baahubali (@BaahubaliMovie) January 15, 2018 Before the release of 'Baahubali 2' in April 2017, people couldn't sleep for days and were constantly haunted by just one question – WHY DID KATTAPPA KILL BAAHUBALI? Soon this turned into a million dollar question and people flocked the movie theatres to know the real reason behind Kattappa's ultimate betrayal. If we were to compare a movie character with any of the education institutions out there, there's one comparison that all the MBA aspirants will unanimously agree with – Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad is the 'Baahubali' of business schools. And now that the business school will study the movie, they probably might have a different explanation to Kattappa's actions and why he betrayed and killed Baahubali. © Arka Media Works When Prabhas and SS Rajamouli decided to work together in 'Baahubali: The Beginning' and 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'; little did they know that the movie will change the fate of Indian cinema, and they will become the spear headers of this change. 'Baahubali 2' literally crushed the box office in 2017 for reasons that were quite obvious – intriguing storyline, brilliant visual effects and graphics and exceptional acting of Prabhas, Rana Daggubatti, Sathyaraj, Anushka Shetty and Ramya Krishnan. © Arka Media Works As for the movie, we hope Rajamouli comes up with a parallel ending where all of this turns out to be a fragment of Katappa's imagination, who in reality was the main antagonist trying to wreck havoc in the lives if doting brothers Amarendra Baahubali and Bhallaladeva. But, we all know that's not going to happen, so let's go back and binge watch both the movies all over again.
  5. Arguably one of the greatest tennis players of his time, Roger Federer made a solid start to his Australian Open title defence after brushing Aljaz Bedene aside in straight sets. Despite playing down talk of being labelled as the man to beat in this year's first Grand Slam, Federer gave a stark reminder why many can't look beyond him by putting Bedene to the sword in sets of 6-3, 6-4, 6-3. While he looked impressive in his latest win, it's a stunt he pulled off during the recently-concluded Hopman Cup in Australia that has taken social media by storm. Federer and his partner Belinda Bencic were representing Switzerland in the mixed doubles semi-final against the United States' Jack Sock and CoCo Vandeweghe when out of nowhere, the Swiss ace pulled off one of the most epic stunts in his playing career. Leading by a set, Federer decided to have a little fun as he served to Sock. In what initially looked normal, soon turned into a funny spectacle as both Federer and Sock completely usurped the game from their respective partners while playing a little set of their own. Men will be men.... — Rishi Bagree ð®ð³ (@rishibagree) January 13, 2018 It would have been a usual affair in a single's clash, but hey? It was mixed doubles. Taking charge of the court, both the male stars exchanged shot after shot in an unending rally while their respective female partners on court watched helplessly. Soon, both Bencic and Vandeweghe lost hope and while waiting to be passed the serves, they decided to sit down in exasperation. © Reuters However, that didn't deter Federer or Sock who continued with their rally of shots, seemingly oblivious of the women players on the court. Soon, Vandeweghe walked out of the court to sit on the players' bench and Bencic, too, followed suit. Of course, in the spirit of fun, the two men ignored their partners while continuing with their tweener shots and behind the back shots to leave everyone in splits. The video of the hilarious rally has turned out to be a huge hit amongst the fans on social media. From being slammed by feminists to being called 'typical men', the video has garnered all sorts of reactions on Twitter. Lmao men's behavior wrapped in one video! ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¥ð¤£ð¤£ — DAVID IS THE NAME™ (@TheeKing_Dave) January 14, 2018 It's a good sign!!! “Women don't stress yourselves, we got this”. — عثÙا٠ÙاÙا٠(@othmanasquare) January 14, 2018 I am sure their penises grew an inch, permanently. — ck (@creativedino) January 14, 2018 ðð — EyadSo (@Eyados93) January 14, 2018 Feminist after seeing this — ryan (@Ryannnn94) January 14, 2018 They legit walked off ðð — Adetayo (@T_choc) January 15, 2018 This is so unfair ð£ I'm glad both women walked off the court the way they made a point without making trouble — Dark Horse (@whimsicalgod) January 14, 2018 As long as the women didn't feel undermined during the game, I'm good. — Rebeqah Abraham (@RebeqahAbe) January 15, 2018 For anyone who has an iota of common sense, the incident will come across as nothing more than some mid-match fun. A classic case of boys will be boys, if you will. There was no harm, no foul. Thus, labelling the video of the players' behaviour as sexist or misogynist would be merely a case of seeing smoke where there's no fire.

  8. For all those who missed watching R Madhavan in Hindi films, his new project is bound to make their day. No, he hasn't come up with a film just yet but it is just as good. Our very own Maddy is here with a digital series called 'Breathe' with Amazon Prime and after looking at the trailer, your perception about him will change. Completely. Known for mostly doing 'good-guy' roles, Madhavan is playing the role of a father who can go to any lengths to save the life of his child. Basically, he is shedding the 'good-guy' image and boy, he is doing it REALLY well. The digital series has been in the news since months, owing to its chilling posters and teasers that Maddy kept posting on his social media. Like this one. Get ready for a breathless experience. #BreatheTeaser in 3 days! @BreatheAmazon @AmazonVideoIN — Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) January 2, 2018 And this too. And now, after what felt like years, the full trailer of the series is finally here and has left us wanting for more. Who doesn't want to see more of this talented man? The trailer pretty much tells the entire plot of the story. Madhavan, as told before, is a doting father whose son is in his dying stages because of severe lung damage. © Amazon Prime Video In order to save his life, he needs more blood belonging to the AB negative group, which unfortunately does not have a lot of donors. © Amazon Prime Video This is enough to turn Madhavan's character into a monster that'd go to any extent to save his son's life, even if that includes murdering people. And by murders, we mean LOTS of murders. © Amazon Prime Video Have a look at the chilling trailer: The show is set to be Amazon's first trilingual digital series and will stream in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The series also stars Amit Sadh and Sapna Pabbi and is set to release on 26th January across 200+ countries and territories worldwide.
  9. KARACHI: Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal has said that they would make the case involving police killing of a youngster, Intezar, in Karachi an example, so that no one could dare do such a thing again. Intezar Ahmed, 19, was killed after Anti Car Lifting Cell (ACLC) officers opened fire on his car on Khayaban-e-Ittehad road of the upscale Defence Housing Authority (DHA) area late Saturday. Speaking on Geo News' programme 'Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath', the home minister said that police are meant for public safety and if they fire on [the people], then the masses stop trusting law enforcers and the government. Girl accompanying slain Karachi teenager says did not see assailants: sources Girl, who was a friend of slain youth, has told police she was in the car when Intezar was shot by police He said that shooting a suspect directly is permissible nowhere in the world. "You cannot open fire unless the suspect is armed." Siyal said the decision to deploy plain-clothed personnel in district South of the city was taken in view of rising incidents of mugging there, but this does not mean that one opens direct fire. Reassuring the victim's parents that they would be delivered justice, he said that one of the suspects involved in the killing is on the run, but he is being chased. The minister vowed to bring forth 'black sheep' in the police and said they would make an example out of it, in order to make a policeman think a hundred times before committing such an act.
  10. LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz, daughter of former premier Nawaz Sharif, remarked on Monday that if Asif Ali Zardari and Imran Khan would not unite, then how the conspirators would be identified. The statement was made during her visit to Mozang area, which falls under her mother Kulsoom Nawaz's constituency NA-120. The former first daughter, during her visit, inquired the residents about their problems. "Those known for staging sit-ins are gathering once again, but these individuals will fail like the past," Maryam said, while speaking to newsmen. She also expressed hope that the killer of eight-year-old Kasur girl, Zainab, will soon be apprehended and given an exemplary punishment.
  11. Were you waiting for the Mercedes C and E Class luxury revive? Remember from nearly half a decade ago the E Class your friend got for his wedding and you wished you were the one getting married? Well, the luxo-sedans are back and with better mechanics-- so impressive, you'll wish you were an Ambani. The cars we're talking about were on display at the Detroit Motor Show 2018. We're talking about the 4MATIC+ luxury sedan entourage, in three different variants, all glammed up with a hybrid powertrain! Source: Mercedes Say hello to the shiny Mercedes-AMG CLS 53, E 53 and E 53 Cabriolet all wheel drives. We hope your heart function remains normal after a look at these gorgeous pieces of high end mechanics, especially the Cabriolet, we've forged a special connection with it! Source: Mercedes From a tastefully done front fascia to the detail on the wheel rims, the exterior of both, the coupe and cabriolet, is nothing short of urban-chic, something you would expect from the design team of the marque automobile maker and they don't fail you. Source: Mercedes The CLS coupe, for instance is moulded to perfection, and in its top-down stance the rear end of the E 53 cabriolet looks like the bodywork of a futuristic cruiser vehicle, especially in its black and silver trim colour scheme. Imagine taking your significant other for a ride in the cabriolet for Valentine's Day next year, if you can manage to get one on rent in India, that is. They are both very satisfying to look at, soothing, almost. Source: Mercedes It is the AMG powertrains kick in the adrenaline though. Both C and E 53 get: - A six-cylinder bi-turbo 3 litre engine. - AMG's latest EQ Boost electric engine support system. - The pull of 430 ponies + a 21hp additional power up generated by the EQ Boost. - A 0-100kmph sprint duration of about 4.3 seconds. - Top speeds of about 200kmph. - 4MATIC+ all-wheel drives. - A 9-speed transmission. If the 53 series are the machines of your dreams then it's time to find yourself a rich partner or work hard and get somewhere in life instead of building sand castles in your head. Deliveries should be made by the latter half of this year, so you barely have any time left. Get on it, chop chop!
  12. PTI chairperson Imran Khan at Khushal Khan Khattak University in Karak KARAK: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairperson Imran Khan on Monday vowed to bring money launderers to accountability and recover the country?s looted money once in power. Addressing students at Khushal Khan Khattak University in Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the PTI chief said he would recover the money laundered by the corrupt and invest in education when his party comes in power. ?Unfortunately, education wasn?t given [the importance it deserved] in Pakistan. The country?s biggest challenge is providing education to the youth,? he said, adding that the PTI would ?come to power this year?. Khan also vowed to invest in sports infrastructure. ?My vision is that Pakistan becomes a sports superpower,? he said, pointing out that his government has constructed over a hundred grounds to promote sports in the country. Recalling his cricket-playing days, the World Cup winning captain-turned-politician said he learned of mental strength and a winning attitude from former Australia captain Greg Chappell. ?I learned to overcome fear of failure and how to win at everything from [Greg] Chappell,? said the PTI chief, as he stressed the importance of a winning mindset for all cricketers, athletes and everyone in any profession.
  13. What's your dream job? The one that gives you recognition, fame, success, respect and money? Yeah, that's all of us. However, the ultimate dream would be to do nothing and get paid. Turns out, a travel agency has answered all our prayers. A Swedish travel agency is on the lookout for professional 'slackers' and want to pay you for literally doing nothing! © Pexels The profile involves you being a 'fakeation specialist' and you will basically need to chill in shorts and lounge around as they click you with a background of the Mediterranean Sea. Sounds fantastic, right? Talking about the qualifications that the job requires, the list includes 'not thinking out of box' and must love sitting and lying down. The position is based out of Stockholm and like all good things come to an end, this job is also short term. The term is from 22nd January to 4th February only; so in case you are interested, you can apply here. ( The position only requires 4 slackers, so the competition is crazy. They will be paid on an hourly basis. All you need to do is send some pictures of you chilling around. Oh, and forget about the need of a professional resume as well.
  14. There's an undercurrent of change currently running through Indian politics. With the Congress party at its lowest as compared to the last two decades, there's a huge political vacuum in the country that needs to be filled, even if one needs to qualify as a principal opposition party to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2019 general elections. Here, we list out five Indian politicians who have risen in the recent past and can disrupt political conventions in 2018. Jignesh Mevani © BCCL Gujarat was destined to provide prime time thrills being the Prime Minter's home state in the 2017 elections but nobody could have imaged the kind of impact Jignesh Mevani had amongst the poor and the lower castes during the elections. The Dalit firebrand leader came into the limelight after he led a protest march in August, 2016 called Dalit Asmita Yatra after attacks on Dalit men in Una village in the Saurashtra region of Gujarat. Recently, Mevani was in the news again for giving provocative speeches in Pune which allegedly led to Bhima Koregaon violence. Mevani contested and won the election from Vadgam constituency and is definitely one of the new political stars with massive following ready to make an impact in this election season. Hardik Patel © BCCL One of the stalwarts of the elections in Gujarat, Hardik Patel's popularity amongst the Patidar community in Gujarat is unparalleled. Patel is the leader of the Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) which aims to secure quota for Patidar's in education and government jobs under the OBC category. Hardik Patel along with Jignesh Mevani was instrumental in halting BJP's march towards a thumping majority in the Gujarat Elections. While BJP might have just scraped through this time, Patel could well emerge as one of the prime chief ministerial candidates in years to come. Yogi Adityanath © BCCL The right-wing Hindu leader and the Chief Minister of the biggest state in India, Yogi Adityanath's rise to a star campaigner for the BJP has been incredible. Recently, Yogi was in news for his twitter jibe against Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah as he raised the issue of farmer deaths and communal crimes against Hindus in the state. Yogi has been a five time MP from the Gorakhpur constituency and he is also the founder of the Hindu Yuva Vahini which has been associated with many communal incidents in the state. While all those associations have been brushed under the carpet, Yogi Adityanath continues to enjoy a rockstar status within the BJP and his stocks will continue to rise in the near future. Rajinikanth © BCCL With the AIADMK without its supreme leader and DMK without Karunanidhi, Rajinikanth's foray into Tamil politics will turn out to be the most defining moment of the decade in Indian politics. There is incredible support for an alternative in Tamil politics especially when it's led by Rajinikanth. The superstar has had a troubled relationship with politicians in his time. During the 1991-1996 Jayalalithaa government, he was forced to get out from his car and walk to his residence which was housed in the same neighbourhood as Jayalalithaa. But his entry into politics will definitely change the entire dynamics of Tamil politics and he could turn out to be a big factor even before the assembly election in 2021 if he chooses to campaign against the current Modi-government in the 2019 general elections. Sachin Pilot © BCCL One of Congress' mainstay, Sachin Pilot will in all eventuality be the Chief Ministerial candidate for Rajasthan this year. The current BJP government headed by Vasundhra Raje has been charged time and again for not being able to rein in communal elements and that has had a major impact on the public perception. Under Pilot's leadership, Congress won four zila parishad seats, 16 of the 27 panchayat samiti seats and six nagar palika seats for which the bypolls were held in 2017. With a strong support base and a vision of the state, Sachin Pilot could deliver a stunning victory for congress in Rajasthan in 2018.
  15. Ask any of your 'Canada wale' or 'Kanedian' buddies as they are lovingly called, that what do they miss the most about home? The answer is probably going to be their Punjabi mummy's food! We are no different, after all nothing beats the wonderfulness of the hot 'rotis' served by our loving moms. via GIPHY If you are from Punjab, you'd know the immense love behind making hot 'chappatis' on a 'chulha' and the whole family gathering around it for dinner. Turns out, this desi mom in Canada knows her stuff pretty well. A video has been going viral now and it shows a loving mom making 'rotis' in the fireplace. It's been shared by a page on Facebook called Edmonton Vich Punjabis and it has everyone laughing hard. NRI's are going gaga over this 'jugaad' and all desis are requesting this mom to invite them over. The next time you call your mom from Canada and tell her you are missing her food, beware because she might just fly down and make the impossible happen, because, 'maa sab jaanti hai'!
  16. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan in his recent interview to AP said that meeting US President Donald Trump would be a "bitter pill" to swallow for him if he becomes Pakistan's prime minister after general elections scheduled in 2019, however, he would meet him. Responding to a question, Khan said he has been a strong opponent of Pakistan's participation in the war on terror sfollowing the 9/11 attacks on the US. "Pakistan had nothing to do with it," he said He remarked that though he supported co-operation with the United States but not the involvement of Pakistan's military into a ground battle with its own people in the tribal regions. Khan said that Trump scapegoated Pakistan for the US.-led coalition's failure to defeat the Taliban and bring peace to Afghanistan, and that "it was very insulting of him." The PTI leader added that the US dishonors the memory of thousands of Pakistan's soldiers who died battling insurgents in its tribal regions, as well as that of tens of thousands of Pakistanis who died in terrorist attacks. "The way the United States has treated Pakistan as a doormat is not fair," he said. Khan said he was committed to mainstreaming tens of thousands of madrassas in the country. He said he wants madrassa school graduates to have skills that will allow them to find jobs across all sectors. As it stands, madrassa graduates are ill-equipped to work as anything other than clerics or prayer leaders. "We will train their teachers to bring them into the mainstream," he said, without providing details on how that would be accomplished.
  17. Steve Jobs – the Apple Giant – was an American tech-visionary, entrepreneur, inventor, business magnate and industrial designer. He was the chairman, CEO, and co-founder of Apple Inc. – a brand that revolutionized the way we live. He was also a majority shareholder at Pixar Animation Studios – a Walt Disney Company. Despite his boundless success, Jobs lived quite a modest life. He lived in a simple house in the neighborhood of Palo Alto, with an open driveway. He kept himself rooted and never let success get to his head. He was a genius man who led an ordinary life. However, he had a unique hobby, related to his cars. © nextweb Jobs was pretty infamous for his liking for the slot of the parking lot dedicated to the differently-abled. He was also considered an outlaw for driving around in his favorite car – silver Mercedes SL55 AMG, with a blank license plate. Yes! You read that right. There was no number plate on Jobs' car! It has been a mystery as to how he managed to drive a number-less car. Questions surrounding this weird penchant and how he pulled it off have always been flowing around on social media. Speculations like “he paid the fine every time he was caught” or “he had some special leverages granted by the Government of California” have been around. Some people have even gone to the extent of assuming that since he was stinking rich, maybe he bought a new car every month to keep up with his acquired taste for blank number plates! Well, no matter the inconsistent theories, we have solved this mystery for you. We all know that Jobs was a genius. This brainiac had somehow found a loophole in the 'California Vehicle Code' – the state rulebook containing traffic laws. And, it was through this loophole that he managed to drive a numberless number plate car without actually breaking the law. © autoblog According to the 'California Vehicle Code', any person who owns a brand new car has a time limit of six months to get a registered number plate and fix it to the vehicle. So, Jobs made an official arrangement with the car company where he could change cars after the completion of sixth months of the lease. This enabled him to exchange his old silver Mercedes SL55 AMG for another new one every time. Hence, he actually never broke laws as he was not required to use any number plate for his car during the given period!
  18. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan addresses members of parliament from his ruling AK Party (AKP) during a meeting at the Turkish parliament in Ankara, Turkey, January 9, 2018. REUTERS ISTANBUL: President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday that Turkey?s military incursion in northern Syria?s Idlib province would crush Kurdish militia forces that control the neighboring region of Afrin. The Kurdish YPG militia said Turkish forces inside Syria fired shells into Afrin on Saturday, but no one was wounded. Turkish troops entered Idlib three months ago after an agreement with Russia and Iran for the three countries to try to reduce fighting between pro-Syrian government forces and rebel fighters in the largest remaining insurgent-held part of Syria. But the few observation posts which the Turkish army says it has established are close to the dividing line between Arab rebel-held land and the Kurdish-controlled region of Afrin. ?If the terrorists in Afrin don?t surrender we will tear them down,? Erdogan told a congress of his ruling AK Party in the eastern Turkish city of Elazig. The Kurdish YPG militia said Turkish forces stationed in Syria shelled several Kurdish villages in the Afrin region on Saturday, without causing casualties. Rojhat Roj, the YPG spokesman in Afrin, told Reuters the shelling was carried out by Turkish forces in Dar Taizaah and Qalat Seman - areas where he said Turkish forces had deployed as part of the agreement with Russia and Iran. ?From our side, there is no shelling at present,? he added. Erdogan has said the Kurdish YPG militia is trying to establish a ?terror corridor? on Turkey?s southern border, linking Afrin with a large Kurdish-controlled area to the east. In 2016 Turkey launched its Euphrates Shield military offensive in northern Syria to push back Daesh from the border and drive a wedge between the Kurdish controlled regions. ?With the Euphrates Shield operation we cut the terror corridor right in the middle. We hit them one night suddenly. With the ?dlib operation, we are collapsing the western wing,? Erdogan said, referring to Afrin. He also said Turkey could drive YPG forces out of Manbij. The mainly Arab town lies west of the Euphrates, and Turkey has long demanded that Kurdish fighters pull back east of the river. ?In Manbij, if they break the promises, we will take the matter in our own hands until there are no terrorists left. They will see what we?ll do in about a week,? Erdogan said. Turkey was a major supporter of rebels fighting to overthrow Syria?s President Bashar al-Assad, but is alarmed by the strength of Kurdish forces - which Ankara says are linked to Kurdish militants fighting in southeast Turkey. It has criticized the United States for arming YPG and Arab fighters in the Syrian Democratic Forces, which drove Daesh out of Raqqa and other parts of Syria. ?The US sent 4,900 trucks of weapons in Syria. We know this. This is not what allies do,? Erdogan said. ?We know they sent 2,000 planes full of weapons.?
  19. We are living in one of the best times possible and the credit partly goes to the ever growing technology, which is developing at a speed faster than that of Usain Bolt. It is because of technology that things which appeared unimaginable decades earlier are now a child's play for most of us. One such technology is the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle aka drones. © Pexels Apart from its conventional use in the military and for delivery purpose, people have managed to find quirky and unusual ways to use drones, like racing, pizza delivery, storm chasing, playing pranks, for surveillance and more. However, of all these, one of the most beautiful and possibly the perfect usage of drones is for aerial photography and these pictures are proof. Dronestagram is a Paris based photo sharing community that brings together photographers from all corners of the world, who are passionate about drone photography. Like every year, this time too they organized their annual International Drone Photography Contest for 2017 and after receiving thousands of entries, the top 20 have been shortlisted.

  20. COAS Gen Qamar Bajwa. Photo: File RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa received two phone calls from US Centcom Commander General Joseph Votel and one from a US senator over the week to discuss Pak-US security cooperation following President Donald Trump?s tweet, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Friday. The army chief told the US officials that Pakistan will continue its "sincere counter-terrorism efforts" even without US financial support in accordance with its own national interest and will remain committed to bringing the effort to its logical conclusion along with other stakeholders. Trump, in a New Year tweet, accused Pakistan of lies and deceit. "They give safe havens to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" he said on January 1. The incident led to heightened tensions between Pakistan and the US. Later, on January 5, the US announced that it is suspending the transfer of military equipment and security-related funds to Pakistan. COAS raises cross-border attacks in meeting with CENTCOM commander CENTCOM Commander General Joseph L Votel met army chief General Qamar Bajwa in Rawalpindi on Thursday According to the ISPR, General Votel apprised the army chief about the US decision regarding the US security assistance and coalition support fund. "The general said that the US values Pakistan?s role towards the war on terror and expected that the ongoing turbulence remains a temporary phase," the ISPR said. He also conveyed to the army chief that the US is not contemplating any unilateral action inside Pakistan but is seeking cooperation to tackle Afghan nationals who, in his view, use Pakistan?s soil against Afghanistan, the ISPR informed. "This view, he felt, was undermining in Washington Pakistan?s contributions in the war against terrorism," the ISPR statement added further. According to the ISPR, the COAS said that the entire Pakistani nation felt betrayed over recent US statements despite decades of cooperation. Accordingly, Pakistan's unanimous national response reflected the same sentiments. Moreover, the army chief was quoted saying that "Pakistan shall continue its sincere counter terrorism efforts even without US financial support in accordance with our national interest and shall remain committed to bringing it to its logical conclusion along with other stakeholders". He added that Pakistan is fully aware of US concerns on activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan and "we are already undertaking multiple actions through Operation Raddul Fasaad to deny any residual capacity to terrorists of all hue and colour for which return of Afghan Refugees is an essential prerequisite". "Pakistan has suffered hugely due to great power contestation in the region," the army chief reportedly stated. The US officials were also apprised of Pakistan's moves to strengthen border controls unilaterally "but if Afghanistan genuinely feels affected from Pakistan, bilateral border management must be Kabul?s top priority as well". The COAS reiterated that Pakistan will not seek resumption of aid but expects honourable recognition of its contributions, sacrifices and unwavering resolve in the fight against terrorism for peace and stability in the region, according to the ISPR. "Pakistan will keep supporting all initiatives for peace in Afghanistan despite the tendency to scapegoat Pakistan, as peace in Afghanistan is the only way to move towards enduring peace and stability in the region," the army chief was quoted saying by ISPR. General Votel acknowledged the effectiveness of some of the recent actions taken by Pakistan to ensure that Pakistan?s hospitality to Afghan refugees is not misused in any way, the ISPR said, adding that the US general agreed that both countries stand to gain from cooperative engagement.
  21. Let's give the lad a 'Certificate of Participation' first. For unknowingly or casually, raining on the 'fade' parade in life. A hairstyle, that was once introduced into the world by grooming gods like David Beckham and Zayn Malik, and glorified by a million humans across the globe. So with hundred of pages of visual proof, it's safe to say, that Dhoni too succumbed to the 'do at one point in his life. And what started as just a casual grooming move years ago has now become the cricketer's way of life. Over time, however, the inventor of the 'Helicopter shot', Mahendra Singh Dhoni has put out his variations of the haircut on display in public. While most have been versions of a medium-length fade, we did see moments of a low-fade as well. All in all, until now, he's had a great run at acing the decade's biggest hair trend. Looking back at a few of his best 'fade' moments till date: © Times Of India © Times of India © BCCI © Instagram/MS Dhoni Fans Rounding it up, let's give it to him: he's excelled at taking the 'do from casual settings to highly formal press conferences too. Proving, that the 'fade' is clearly one of the biggest highlights of his life. But as it is with every worldly process, a few body changes happen over time. To say it out straight: over the course of time, of course Dhoni's hair colour turned to 'salt and pepper'. Hence, the need for hair colouring arose (which we're sure he succumbed to) when we hardly saw any moments of the 'salt' on him (kudos, man). But if a recent Instagram post that's making the rounds is any indication, looks like he's turned to indifferent times: Daddy's Girl â¤â¤ #Ziva with papa #mahendrasinghdhoni ððð How cute they both are... @mahi7781 @sakshisingh_r A post shared by Bollywood'S Kids (@bollywood_kids) on Jan 11, 2018 at 4:52am PST Caught candid by the bugs with his baby daughter 'Ziva', Dhoni stands for a big salt and pepper in the image above. Notice how the crease line of the fade is almost snow-like and only gradually turning to the colour black (as you move upwards). The centre of the mane, however, is quite a spiked-Mohawk hybrid and not forgetting, also short enough for very easy maintenance. Which salon did he head to and who's his damn barber, are answers we're trying to find on google right now. In all probability, however, we're certain that it's Sapna Bhavnani's scissor magic once again!
  22. While KJo is busy launching posters the ISRO recently celebrated an achievement that made the nation proud.

  23. NAWABSHAH: Former president and Pakistan People?s Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Thursday that in the next general elections, Nawaz Sharif and the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-N will be part of opposition. The PPP co-chairman was speaking to media in Nawabshah, where he said that the elections in Senate will take place. ?Nawaz?s B-team is incapable of solving issues,? said the former president. Zardari said that there is no prospect of a technocrat government in the Constitution. The PPP co-chairman while referring to the turbulent Pakistan-US relations said that the new government will help have better relations between the two allies. It will be detrimental to let ties with the United States deteriorate, said the former president. Zardari said that the provincial government has given funds worth Rs300 million for clean drinking water in Nawabshah, adding that the party will strive to provide better education and health facilities.
  24. A friend once said, “Parents falling ill should be a fundamental wrong.” As I helped mom get up, the words resounded in my ears. A parent's illness is disturbing. We're so used to being cared for by our parents, that we forget time will soon reverse the roles. As kids, we're selfish brats and in our minds, continue to maintain the status quo. If there's one thing we take for granted the most in the whole wide world, it's our parents, especially our mothers. Need aloo parathas on a Sunday morning – mom. Need advice on how to treat that annoying cold – mom. As kids when we fell sick, there was just one word that soothed our petrified hearts – mom. © Facebook/Ankush Bahuguna As we grow older and our parents much older, the inevitable happens. They become weaker, frailer, and vulnerable. They may put up a façade of being strong or they may demand more of your time – either way, they are no longer invincible like you believed in childhood. When you hit your pinky toe against the bed or spot a lizard in your bathroom, most of us still have a universal exclamation – “ma”/ “mummy” – that word we are so used to calling out in times of danger. When parents fall ill – god forbid it, but they do – that's when it hits you – that old equation of superman and citizen is permanently altered. You have to be the superman now. Working in 9-to-6 jobs with hectic schedules, we are all trying our best to make something great out of life. Earn more money, socialize with friends and colleagues, find love, sweat out the stress in the gym, ace that promotion – there's a lot to do and there's little space for parents in our everyday corporate routine. They understand – they want their children to make the most out of their lives, and so they resign themselves to the margins of our lives, prodding us gently every once in a while to register their existence. © YouTube/Axis Bank Sometimes they fall ill and all hell breaks loose. We realise our tightly scheduled lives are built in a way that there's no space for a parent falling ill. Our lives come crashing down and suddenly we are transported to a different world – their world. A world of yellow lightbulbs and old Hindi songs, a world of milk porridge and antacids, a world of reading the newspaper in the morning sun. That world is so unknown to us, it baffles us, makes us uneasy and we writhe in discomfort. We have come so far from their world, trying to build a different world of our own, that we have left them far behind. It's no one's fault – don't blame yourself for single-mindedly focusing on your life; it's a necessary evil. Blame the third world economy for overworking our parents, blame the society for the lack of support systems for the elderly, blame the law of nature. The blame is ours too, yes, when we turn a deaf ear to their soft pleas for our time, when we turn a blind eye to their aching knees and boxes of tablets, when we cancel that trip home every time thinking next year. © UTV Motion Pictures But when they fall ill, life stops and you struggle to make sense of this new slow and uneventful world. It's difficult to see a loved one in pain, more so if that loved one has been your superman. As you grow up, a lot many myths are shattered, the most painful of them being this – that your superman is mortal. You have to reverse the role you enjoyed all your life and the harsh realization doesn't come gently; it comes as abruptly as your guts belching out last night's bad food. It comes when you get a call in the middle of the night from your mother sleeping in the next room. It comes at the doctor's clinic when he lists down a myriad tests and medicines and explains to your reeling head all the permutations and combinations the medicines have to be taken in – how did your parents even remember your medicines schedules or your school time-tables and never messed up even once, year after year? How did they remain awake all night when you burned with fever, how did they wake up early in the morning to pack your tiffin and drop you to the bus stop every day without fail for 12 long years? The benchmark they set is too high, too superhuman for us to reach. Sometimes you wish our society would take it a little easy and parents shouldn't be required to be so selfless raising their children. Bunking school because your mom wanted to sleep in till a little late or your dad wanted to finish his newspaper in the morning should have been perfectly fine. © UTV Motion Pictures We cannot be as selfless and giving as they were. We cannot leave our lives behind. But if our current lives cannot handle a parent's illness, it's time to pause and rethink. If your job doesn't let you cater to your ailing parent, is the money even worth it? They understand, mostly. Sometimes it's just the moral support they need, the assurance that you're there. Sometimes, a single message asking about their health is more meaningful than hours spent with them with hardly any conversation. When they are ill, they want our love but the last thing they want is to see our lives suffering. It's almost as if they're apologetic for falling ill – “Sorry, beta you had to cancel your meeting for me. I'll be fine, you should go,” they'll say. All we have to say is, “It's okay ma (or pa), come let's have tea.”
  25. What is 'Race' without Saif Ali Khan? Every time you think of this film, Saif's character Ranvir Singh comes to your mind. The persona of the character that he created is not an easy one to forget. Such was his charm that not just the first instalment but even the sequel did wonders at the box office. From his quick-badass wit to his style of dressing, everything he did just made us love him even more. So naturally, it did come as a big surprise when Saif's name wasn't in the cast of 'Race 3'. Yeah, it was quite disappointing and we will not lie about that. The third instalment of the franchise has Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem, Freddy Daruwala and Daisy Shah. Well, that's an interesting medley of talent and Abbas-Mustan totally knows how to make a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seats. But Saif's presence will be missed. Recently, Saif was asked why he isn't a part of the film and, speaking to IANS, he revealed that the film was, of course, offered to him but he didn't connect with the part that was offered. © Tips “Ramesh Taurani said I'm making a completely different movie this time with a totally different story. I was offered a part but Salman Khan is the best thing to happen to anybody. He's the biggest star in the country. I didn't feel a connection myself with the part I was offered. So, I decided to do something else.” No doubt Salman makes entertaining films but we will miss Saif for sure!
